Just like human physicians, a veterinary specialist is someone who has completed extensive and advanced training in a narrow field of medicine or surgery.  Specialists routinely have four to six years of advanced training consisting of a one-year internship and a two to four year residency beyond veterinary school. Upon completion of the program, residents must pass a credential review and rigorous specialty board examination to earn the title of Diplomate as an acknowledgement of their expertise.
